Relax and enjoy.

Posted Oct 18, 2016
Pros: The position.
Cons: The pool bar.
Location: Very good quality restaurants and a number of shops nearby. The gondola down to the beach is in easy walking distance as is the Greek amphitheatre.
The hotel is in an excellent position, a short uphill walk to the Corsa Umberto and the shops, restaurants and sights of Taormina but also having great views of Etna and the coast. There is a well maintained garden and a medium sized pool which was very clean. The food choice there was the only weak spot for us. Breakfast was an amazing collection of patisserie, cheeses, cooked meats as well as scrambled eggs and bacon and Prosecco of course! Rooms in the main building seemed to vary in size and quality of view, bathroom etc. We had the choice of taking a studio just along the street and were delighted with the facilities there. The private balcony had magnificent uninterrupted views of the coastline, a huge bed, a sofa, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities. The staff provided excellent service, booking trips and restaurants for us.

Fabulous hotel close to old town

Posted Sep 22, 2016
Pros: Breakfast; pool area; fantastic views; wonderful staff; comfy beds.
Cons: Would be nice if the pool area was open longer.
Location: Fantastic location within easy level walking distance of the old town.
Fabulous hotel, within walking distance of the old town. Breakfast was very generous and included fresh fruit which was brilliant. If you can afford the sea view rooms, do. We couldn't but did look longingly through the doors when the cleaners were cleaning!! The hotel has no restaurant/room service which is something to be aware of.

The staff was wonderful especially Antonella.

Posted Sep 19, 2016
Pros: The staff, the view and the ease to walk most anywhere. The bus stop was just a few minutes walk from the hotel where most tours departed.
Cons: We find that most hotels outside the US do not supply a face cloth with their linens. Most Americans use a face cloth and must bring their own.
The staff could not have been better and went out of their way to make things special. Flowers and candies for my wife's birthday made it very special for her. The breakfasts were great with a big selection. Antonella deserved a medal for helping us return a defective rental car.

Pros: Location and the staff were charming
Comfortable stay and fantastic visit to Taormina and surrounding area. The hotel can be thoroughly recommended it was wonderful. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food delicious - lunches by the poolside are a highlight.

Pros: Posizione e vista
Cons: Parcheggio auto
Personale qualificato, un'ottima posizione e una colazione abbondante. È un vero peccato che la bella struttura della casa che ospita l'albergo e la graziosa entrata vengano deturpate dal parcheggio massivo delle auto degli ospiti.

Hyggeligt men dårlig morgenmad

Posted Jul 28, 2016
Fint hotel og dejlig stemning morgenmad ikke særlig god og der var altid venten på tallerkener osv. Værelse i studio lejlighederne fine og man var for sig selv.

Really lovely!!

Posted Jul 22, 2016
Our entire experience was great. This boutique hotel was incredibly special mostly because of the personal service! From the moment I called because our navigation was not taking us to the correct street, Maria guided us on the telephone, and helped us navigate the Taormina streets. She greeted us outside upon arrival and was like our personal concierge for our 3 day stay. The staff could not have been nicer! Maria was incredibly knowledgable, warm and accommodating. The pool area and rooms were great. The location was perfect as well. Would highly recommend.

Deluxe Zimmer

Posted Jul 17, 2016
Wir haben uns nach längerem Überlegen für die Deluxe Zimmer entschieden, welche sich in einem nahe liegendem Gebäude befinden: tolles Zimmer mit Balkon und traumhaftem Ausblick. Das Zimmer verfügt über eine kleine Küchenzeile, sodass man zB sich auch Frühstück selbst zubereiten kamm. Insgesamt war alles super, auch der Pool. Allerdings stimmt meines Erachtens der Preis nicht so ganz. 400€ pro Nacht würde nicht nochmal hierfür ausgeben, da mir zu dem Preis der erwartete Luxus gefehlt hat. Das Hauptgebäude ist etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Wir waren deshalb ganz froh, eines der neuen Zimmer im zweitem Gebäude zu beziehen.
